The winter holiday season is upon us. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, and everything in between. The holidays are a time of celebration and can be especially welcome in the Northern Hemisphere where the hours of daylight steadily decrease and the temperatures drop. While these festive days can be hard, they also represent an opportunity to gather with the people we care most about.
And eat! Let’s be honest: one of the best parts about the holidays are the meals. For two months, diets slip away (or go out the window entirely), replaced by a generous spread of appetizers, entrees, sides, drinks, and desserts. Sure, it’s a lot of food, but there’s always that New Year’s Resolution at the end to help shave the calories back off.
Different people handle the foods differently. Perhaps you are all about “traditional” foods on traditional days, such as the signature turkey on Thanksgiving or a ham on Christmas. Or maybe you’re all about bucking the trends, either by making your own favorite meals … or letting someone else do it.
No matter your preferences, we’d love to hear about them. What are your favorite holiday foods, especially where Aldi is involved?
